City of Calgary receives distinguished budget award

The City of Calgary has won an award that recognizes excellence in planning and budgeting.

The City’s 2009-2011 three year business plan & budget received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States and Canada. The award was presented in council on Monday.

According to The City’s Financial Officer, Eric Sawyer, the 2009-2011 Budget and Business Plan was a collaborative effort across all City departments and it provides Calgarians an easy-to-read and easy to understand overview of The City’s operations.

The Government Finance Officers Association is the professional association of state, provincial and local finance officers in the United States and Canada. Its main purpose is to enhance and promote the professional management of governments for the public benefit.
